Do you have an e-reader or a Kindle app?* It's available as an ebook.

*You can get the app free for Android/iPhone and PC. Which you no doubt know, being a computerly type, but maybe others reading don't!

While I do have ebook access, I'd much rather have it in paper form.  Call it a personal quirk. :)

I liked having a distinct thread for each chapter, but my copy isn't here so I don't know if each chapter would provide enough content to warrant individual threads? On the other hand, having a single thread does keep the conversation together and more connected, and allows us to link things from chapter to chapter a little easier.

(My longwinded way of saying I have no particular preference!)

 
I wasn't sure how my time was going to be since I am visiting family at the moment, so I read the introduction and chapter 1 when I had some time, and they aren't super long.  I don't know if later chapters will be longer though.  

Having a separate thread for each chapter might make it easier to find specific discussions, especially once we are a few chapters in, but it might make discussion about things that reference multiple chapters more tricky. Both ways have pro's and con's.

I think if we make it a group, one thread per chapter (perhaps with a separate thread for general thoughts or whole book discussion) would work better, but if we are keeping it in the main forum, a single thread (maybe with a bold post to mark the start of a new chapter) would be less clutter.

I hope I'm not too late in posting in this thread, but I'm interested in it. Does anyone mind if I join in? I've had a print copy in my bookshelf for a while and never really knew what to do with it. I figured it'd be something good to cover with a group. I'm open to whatever arrangement for the posting of replies in threads. :)

Still interested, but Local Pagan Store is being awkwardly slow in actually getting a copy of the book to me. I'll join in when I can.

Just got a call from them; my copy has arrived! I am, naturally, out of town. Which is kinda disappointing, as I've got a substantial wodge of time on the plane flight home that could have been 'work on things' time. Oh well. It'll be there when I get there, I suppose.
